haha, I know I use this word a lot but it's how I feel, Awesome! This animation is very slick man. haha, I want to see him doing this to an enemy now.

If you don't mind me asking, What gif program do you use? I've been wanting to get back into the gif game. You sir are inspiring.

Thanks a lot! Glad you dig it. :)

I build the figure in Flash by making it out of separate body parts (drawn over a model sheet I import into the program), then scale it down to sprite size (about 100 px high or so) and make the animations (so I can rotate the body parts using vectors without worrying about anti-aliasing problems) and then I export each frame I create in Flash into Photoshop, which I then use to make the animated .gif by putting every frame on a separate layer.

The hard part, or at least the time consuming part, is actually building the character rig. Once that's done, making animations is easy. It's cool because once I make one character, it's easy to copy the file and use the parts to make more characters without having to draw them over and over again.

It may need more frames, but it looks good so far. After all, every animation needs keyframes. The inbetweens can come later.

Absolutely. I'm definitely going to smooth it out. I want to have an entire army of animated WCL characters performing attacks. I have all sorts of projects in mind for them.

OH DUDE this is freakin' cool! It looks reasonably smooth and all the poses and motion he goes through look great!

Thanks! It does need some additional frames to smooth it out, but it's feeling okay for a starting point, I think. :)
